'Activate Security Control'@ Tally.ERP 9

Security Control is required in an environment where many people work on accounts using the same computer at different times or the same set of accounts on a network.

 

Tally.ERP 9 has a variety of management reports that are flexible in nature allowing you to create, alter, display and print any information. The Security Control system of Tally.ERP 9 is used to set the authority rights of the user or user groups. This prevents other users from using the system to create, alter, display and print any data. Tally.ERP 9 has a customised security system where the authority levels are set for users at different levels. Tally.ERP 9 has two security types, one for the Owner by default and the other for Data Entry. Other security types can be created based on these predefined types.

 

The Owner has full access and rights to Tally.ERP 9, except for Tally Audit, which is reserved for the administrator alone. Data Entry has restricted rights. Security control can be activated during company creation or by company alteration. Once this is activated, Tally.ERP 9 asks you to enter the name of the user and the password.

 You would need to create different users who belong to one or more different Security Levels or Types of  security. Select the option at the Security Control menu to define users, give their passwords and their security levels.

Note : Only the Administrator can assign users and their passwords.
 

4 Alter/ Display a User / Type of Security

 

There is no separate menu option to alter or display the security options. Use the same menu to display or alter user or security level set-up. To delete a user, simply blank out the user name by pressing Esc/ Spacebar and accept the screen. Do the same for the security level. A user defined under a security level cannot be deleted without deleting the users under it.

  

5 Loading a Company with a User name

 

Security Level

 

The Manager Security Level is set by using Admin as the user name and password. A password is assigned at this level.

Let us shut National Traders and re-select it with the Manager user name and password.

Notice that the report Balance Sheet is not appearing in the menu. This is because the access was denied while defining the security level. Practice this by disallowing other reports and make your observations.
